Happy 4th of July!

The 4th has always been one of my favorite holidays. Celebrating our nations independence with friends and family and usually enjoying the sunshine always puts a huge smile on my face. I have been wanting to play with the new stamp set Home of the Brave for a few weeks but I have not been able to carve any time out. Well this morning I sat down and I had an idea in my head and it came out pretty close. I hope you like it.

I first stamped the flag in cranberry and outdoor denim and then added the pole. Once I had that down I took clear embossing powder and embossed the fireworks and then sponged the outdoor denim to make the back ground. I added the bling at the bottom and wala super fast fun card to take over to your hostesses today.

Quick Graduation Cards

I made some quick graduation cards this past weekend. These came together so fast and you can customize the colors that you need. I did the letters on the Cricuit and used the cute little graduation set in the current CTMH catalog.



Inside the card I just kept it super simple. Like I said this was a fast card. I had to make them the morning of graduation. This set is from the For Always WOTG.

Summer means proms, graduations, and weddings

For Always is the perfect paper pack for these things! My daughter is getting married at the end of this month! My other daughter graduates...this weekend, while my little one finishes up pre-school tomorrow. Wow what a June!!

Here are the invitations and the reason I have been MIA around here



I blacked out all of the details but you can still get an idea of what they looked like. I also put a band around the front of the pocket invitation.
 
In addition I thought I would share some art work from Close to my Heart using this paper pack. It is just gorgeous!

Passages of time through Nashville

So remember that one time a long long time ago that I went to Nashville? Well I finally started scrapbooking the photos! I am about half way done and I am really enjoying how they are turning out. 

I thought about just doing them one by one so you wouldn't know what a bad scrapper I have been lately but then decided to show you both of these pages since they use the same paper.

One of the highlights of our trip was the tour of Studio B. It was pretty cool to think about all of the famous footsteps that have walked into that building and put their dreams out there. Many of them turned into a reality. Patsy Kline, Dolly Parton (who apparently put her car though the wall while trying to park), Elvis recorded there. Actually that piano in my photo's was his piano...just amazing to wander around in there. It was so tiny too.

We also ate at this tiny little place at the edge of a park that had the most amazing BBQ it specializes in white BBQ sauce. I had to try it and yep it was super yummy!  If you are ever in Nashville make sure you stop by and grab a bite at Hog Heaven.
 

Supplies: CTMH Passages, Cricut Cartridge Cowboy Up, CTMH Cricut Cartridge Artiste

Cherry O Sugar Pie

Today I am sharing a quick Sketch-n-Scrap page, I was so happy the whole time I made it and I knew it was going to just all come together.

These are just a few photos of my girls. They are just hanging out being extra adorable. I grabbed some Cherry-O paper. I think this paper always works with girl pages.


I have actually had this level 1 kit for a while but it was white and cherry's in every other space. I decided to fill in the cherry's and I love the way it turned out. I might take a second look at some other level ones I have and use them up too. I love getting new stuff but I also try to use up my old stuff too. I am doing much better. I no longer save it for the perfect layout. If i love it I use it now cause I can buy more or use the next new must have item.


I added some bling and a date. I need to work on my journalling but at least I have the date on here. Better than nothing.


Popped up the cherry's and added more bling


Love the way the title came out. 


Here is the sketch! Isn't it super cute? I hope you will join us and play along...and use up either something brand new or something you have been holding on to forever.
